Dear fellow MoveOn member,
This is Eric Schneiderman, New York's attorney general. And I have a message to share with you: When the right wing goes low, we go local.
The fight against the Trump agenda runs, in part, through our state and local elections. And as I explain in a new video I made with MoveOn.org and Humanity for Progress, it's one we can take on together—building lasting political power for the progressive movement.
(Not on Facebook? You can also click here to watch it on YouTube.)
From fighting the Muslim Ban and defending reproductive rights to resisting attacks on our immigrant communities and tackling climate change, local and state governments are leading the charge. It was a group of state attorneys general whose suit blocked Trump's initial travel ban. And secretaries of state and other local officials are right now rebuffing Trump's fraudulent voter suppression commission's demand for voter information.
We've seen an inspiring surge in grassroots energy—historic marches, countless actions, nonstop phone calls. Now, if we really want to take the Resistance to the next level—and see some real victories in the fight for progressive change—we need that same energy in every state and local election this year, next year, and every year.
It may take a couple of years to see progress in Washington again—but we can start to improve people's lives, protect our rights and liberties, and defend our communities TODAY at the state and local level.
Together, we can resist and we can win.
Want to support our work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. And to do it we need your ongoing support, now more than ever. Will you stand with us?
